What's in the Report

Innovations in Early-Stage Vehicle Design

See how the 3D process empowers designers to test multiple forms and a variety of practical functions, bringing them closer to a final design much more quickly than in the past.

Rapid Tooling for Pre-Series Models

Engineers are evaluating the molds to determine the optimal design before creating a steel version for a final mold. This removes multiple steps and untold costs from the tool making process.

Customizing vehicle trims and options

Creating low-volume, specialized trim and instrument panels that add features such as compartments for tools and instruments, as well as flexible dashboard features.

Real World Functional Testing

3D printed parts are being used to test various engine components; withstanding high heat and chemicals.
